Free, fun and family-oriented. That's the mission of Main Street Rogers being held May 15-16 in Rogers, Arkansas. The Optimist Club of Rogers, Arkansas is right there in the middle of the action.

The fun will include a Catfish Clinic and Fishing Derby, Heart of the Ozarks Car Show, old fashioned games, Fincher Fun Run, Historical Museum Open House, Twilight Walk and the Ninth Annual Optimist International Respect for Law Day.

The Respect for Law Day is a special attraction for it brings the local club together with law enforcement for the kids.

Across town, in front of the Rogers Police Station on Dixieland Road, the ninth annual Respect for Law Day will take place from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. Respect for Law Day is an Optimist International project. The local club partners with local law enforcement for an event that's free for local kids. According to Lt. Mike Johnson, "It's good for the police department to meet with families and kids and interact with them in a positive way." Some local children only see policemen when there's a problem at home, he said.

In addition to bonding with the police department, families can enjoy free pizza and hot dogs. Find out all about it at
